when my son first started karate here he had a lot of help and attention from the instructor. as the class grew in size most of the class time was spent on individual behavior issues and pushups. my sone no longer wanted any part of the classes and dreaded going due to the other students. we couldn't quit altogether as we had to sign a 12 month contract before we could begin classes. after we finished out our year at akk, my sone has a nasty taste in his mouth for karate altogether. i would not recommend this school for children under 15.
